I have another set of Brown's in Randolph (sons of George A. & Julia P. Raines of Sumter, Marion Co Ga) Wm. Nathaniel & Rodolphus.

My cousin Marlin Brown (on my Hooks side-of Randolph)
has this bunch-
He comes from Absolom & Mary Ann Isham-son Joseph William "J W" had John Samuel-married Cora Lee Hooks-sister to my Grandfather Luther-
had my cousin #5 of 6- Marlin Samuel (Well his siblings are my cousins too-my Mother's 1st-but he still lives in Randolph-only one)

I don't know about the two children you say you have no more on-but will be glad to exchange what I have.

Ms. Gerry Hill-Albany Ga.
